Do you have your trolling motor rigged with a foot switch or do you just turn them on and off with the handle?
That's what I was thinking. If you come up on something you could shut it off alot faster. I might be able to get by without the shaft extension, if I use a switch. Don't want to be bending over alot.Get the big foot. The handle is hard to turn off when your shooting fish. its nothing to move your foot.
